Climate management and greenhouse gases

The combination of greenhouse gas emissions, produced directly or indirectly, by people, organizations, products, events or geographical regions and expressed in terms of CO2 equivalent, make up the carbon footprint, as a way of quantifying the impact that an activity or company process has on climate change. According to the GHG Protocol, the carbon footprint consists of the following scopes:

Scope1 Scope 2 Scope 3
Direct from fixed and mobile sources Indirect due to energy generation bought from third parties Other indirect emissions within the supply chain
Our corporate sustainable development goal in terms of Emissions is reducing, by 2030, our greenhouse gas emissions (direct and indirect) by 50%, with a 2018 baseline.
Goal 13.3: Improve education, awareness, and human and institutional capacity regarding climate change mitigation, adaptation to it, reduction of its effects, and early warning
2018 Baseline 2019        2020 Meta

  2017 2018 2019 2019
Total emissions 6,109   6,609   11,004   10,850  
Scope 1 1,834 30.02% 1,954 29.57% 2,002 18.19% 1,965 18.11%
Scope 2 518 8.48% 442 6.69% 448 4.07% 177 1.63%
Scope 3 3,757 61.50% 4.213 63.75% 8,544 77.64% 8,708 80.26%

CMPC has carried out a complete study of its scope 3, expanding its emissions inventory and including all the categories of the GHG Protocol, therefore, variation with respect to 2018 is not an actual increase, but the result of inclusion of the new categories. In the near future, the company expects to model a target, once again using SBTi methodology, beginning to work on priority areas of emission reduction.
